Opposition political parties yesterday expressed their views on the match-fixing allegation made by former sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage with regard to the 2011 Cricket World Cup final with some of them calling for investigations.   

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) candidate Hirunika Premachandra told a news conference that those who were in the Sri Lankan cricket team should reveal the truth to the people. “We condemn this statement made by Mr. Aluthgamage. He as insulted and tarnished the image of the cricketers through this allegations. People in this country should stand up for our cricketers who had brought fame to the nation unlike the politicians,” she said. “It could be part of the SLPP election campaign and makes one wonder whether he directed this allegation against the Prime Minister.”  UNP Gampaha District Candidate Kithsiri Manchanayake said Sri Lanka should seek ICC assistance to carry out an investigation on these allegation. 


JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake also called for an investigation into this allegation. “Mr. Aluthgamage made a serious allegation and we urge President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to conduct an investigation,” he said.
